They used the same SPACE-X booster for the 15th consecutive time to kick off the new year.

Beyond that amazing, nearly unbelivable feat, the booster kicked off the main stage, turned around and flew back to Canaveral to softly land on the correct pad! šŸ˜Ž

Trivia: SPACE-X Starship has mor than TWICE the thrust than the incredible Saturn V...

Jeez. When I was a kid, it was Rocky Jones, Space Ranger. The only rockets at that time were V-2's brought back from Germany. Later we had the exploding Vanguard and Redstone rockets... Science fiction was the only way to get to the moon.

A lady at the nursery invited me over for dinner and gave me a doggy bag with a pound of steak! (Pic in what's cooking thread)

Anyway, this was in her front yard and reminded me of the island I used to inhabit.

I was in the Cayman Islands and saw that. And I saw a whole fargin house made out of bottles. I didn't quite see/grok the "art". Novel and original, yes, but... somewhat resembling garbage (to me). Looked sumpin like this:

Signs of inflation....
Yes, it is really a thing. But those who try to hide it are despicable assholes. If your costs rise, explain the problem to your customers. Using deception against your customers is inexcusable. It is borderline fraud.

I see and understand the current problems in the meat industry. The current situation changes.

But I see top contempt for the snack food industry where they price a bag of corn or potatoes that costs twenty cents at three or four dollars. And then they see an increase of five or ten cents and reduce their bag by a third. Those are the most contemptible assholes.
